The Grammy award winner teased the release of the new video on her instagram, getting fans excited to see what was in store.
See the video below:
The video takes place in a 1960s/1970s cul-de-sac community that mimics the atmosphere of the Harry Styles/Florence Pugh “Don’t Worry Darling” movie — which is all the reason to love this video.
Ballerini portrays the plot of the song, which shows a young wife living next door taking on a murderous identity to eliminate her irritating husband. Although the storyline seems dark, Ballerini delivers it with a touch of humor through her characters actions. However, her plan is foiled by a neighbor who has a clear view into her home.
“I wanted something that had a real look and feel to it,” Ballerini explained in a press statement. “But it needed to be fun… and funny. I wanted something that made people laugh and clink their glasses, because when I wrote this, I wanted ‘If You Go Down’ to be a song that was a reason to turn up the dial.”
The song appears on Ballerini’s SUBJECT TO CHANGE album that released in 2022. She’s currently touring through the Summer and will be co-hosting the CMT Awards alongside Kane Brown on Sunday, April 2.
